The Thoracic and Endocrine Surgery Division fulfills several teaching missions.

Undergraduate education

This includes future medical students, as well as those studying any professions related to the health field, such as nurses, physical therapists, and others.

2. Training in quality and safety

The HUG has developed academic training courses for the benefit of its healthcare staff. A "CAS in quality and safety of care: operational aspects" is offered to all front-line staff; and a "DAS in quality and safety of care: managerial aspects" has been created for managers and teachers/researchers. These courses are also open to other institutions, and promote networking between professionals.

Training programs are open to all medical professionals and support the pursuit of quality at the HUG.


Training is one of the HUG's key missions, conducted in collaboration with the University and Higher Education institutions.
